    1. Oy Oy Oy.I guess I was in a short story mood although while the last book of short stories I read was good this was sorely lacking.All of the short stories DO revolve around the same character Eleanor Stoddard but while the first couple were interesting, as they went on they either got boring, or they lost me, or I just stopped caring about her By the time I read the last story, I basically said enough already and just skimmed it.Had promise at the start, sorely disappointing by the end


    2. A book of short stories all about the same character taking her from girlhood through adulthood Good, if you like short stories I enjoyed it Note the paperback cover is misleading I thought this was a kids book and bought it for my daughter, only to find that it is written for an adult audience.



    3. Gorgeous Intelligent, painful, and beautiful Take a walk through one woman s someone botched childhood sexual adventures to her equally botched adulthood Love.
